Polishing scratches out

Postby tsb » Fri Jul 25, 2008 4:14 pm

Hi, is there a way of polishing scratches out of toughened glass. I've seen some secondhand glass shelves-10mm thick, but are scratched in places where objects have been. The glass is cheap enough for a job I have in mind for my house but not suitable if its all scratched. Any ideas would be appreciated.
